Panel I. Ethical Responsibilities and Personal Risk

Tuesday, April 16 2024 at 6:00 p.m.

Journalists play a crucial role in fostering democratic discourse, one that comes with ethical responsibilities and personal risks. This panel explores how journalists navigate difficult and complex ethical questions, particularly when working with vulnerable contributors and how they assess issues of risk and endangerment when covering conflict and violence.

Panel II. Collaborating Across Borders

Cross-border collaboration is increasingly vital in reporting on global crises. This panel explores how journalists can share sources and data to strengthen the scope and reach of their reporting and how a collaborative approach helps them become resilient in the face of coercion, censorship, intimidation, and threats of violence.

Panel III. Trust and Transparency

In an era of rampant misinformation, disinformation, and eroding trust in the media, how can journalists and journalism outlets create meaningful relationships with their constituents? This panel examines the role of transparency in building bridges between journalists and the communities they serve – and what it means to democratize journalism.
